The words AIDS and comedy are rarely used together, but Pushing Dead is a film in which it is appropriate. HIV positive writer and bouncer Dan Schauble struggles to refill his drug prescriptions after a bureaucratic sna-fu drops him from his health plan. Schauble quietly panics that any disruption to his pharmaceutical regimen can have disastrous consequences for his health, but while he navigates the labyrinthine world of modern healthcare, the other people in his life suffer from their own personal trials and tribulations.
